Ballard: Broad Ripple Parking Garage Set To Open Next Year
June 13, 2011 7 Comments
Mayor Greg Ballard addressed two huge issues in Broad Ripple this morning by announcing a parking garage will be put in on the corner of Broad Ripple and College Avenues. It will be taking the place of the old, rundown gas station on the corner.
Obviously, this will address the parking problem in Broad Ripple by adding 350 parking spots in the garage. Additionally, there will be a retail area and a police station in the first floor of the parking garage. It has long been a bit risky to park your car on a side street and walk back after a night at the restaurants and bars in Broad Ripple. Adding the public safety aspect to the garage is a huge deal.
The $15 million garage is partially financed through the City’s lease of parking meters and there will be public meetings in July so residents can weigh in on the plan.
This is a big win for Broad Ripple.
